and counting, says the columbus dispatch. from both campaigns this year, a sign of how critical ohio is. but president obama winning 18 electoral college votes could seal up a second term. for republican challenger mitt romney, ohio is do or die. and 1.6 million votes are in, either in person or paper absentees, with early voting continuing through the weekend and monday, that number will grow. both sides say that's an advantage to the obama campaign which expects to win the early vote. >> not getting as much attention are the efforts to assist the romney campaign get out the vote particularly with christian conservatives including roman catholics, a group of home school taught teens canvassing, targeting so-called values voters. >> that's why i encourage you to vote for mitt romney. >> statistics say evangelicals that didn't vote, and we were trying to get votes to those niche groups and making sure that they get out and make their voices heard. >> and even this late in ohio there are still undecides. >> and as they try to attack each other, i don't like that, so it makes, makes it kin

expect in columbus, ohio, last night. even though he had bruce springsteen and jay-z warming up the crowd. the nationwide arena looks half empty from the pictures. sandra smith is tracking swing states in the united states. that would include ohio. sandra, which is the key county, killer county in ohio? >> i have circled them. hamilton is the in the southwest corner this is the county which since gnaty is us whoed. important to know why we're watching that. hamilton where columbus lies. specifically watching cincinnati the poverty rate is very high. among the highest in the state. and by the way, this was a key win for president obama in the last election. a democrat won, president obama, for the first time in the last election dating back to 1964. so that will be key to watch tonight. then there's columbus. this of course houses ohio state university, about 60,000 students live in the columbus area. that too is going to be key to watch tonight. as the younger crowd is obviously going to be a big focus there. stuart, as we continue to watch results come in, 7:30 closing as well at that ti
of the badgering done in person or over the air waves impacted early voting. here in columbus, the line stretched out of the door and in the parking lot and people waited in line for two hours to cast a ballot. some of the churches loaded up people on buss and drove them to early voting location. and spokesman said this is resulting in a big surge for president obama. and that is why they fought so hard to keep early voting open in the final weekend leading up to the election here in ohio. associated press reported republicans and democrats, democrats lead by six percent. we can show you video of the absentee ballots and republican response to that. spokesman said they anticipated all along that democrats would lead with early voting, however, the lead is not significant as it was in the last election. they say viewer democrats showed up for early vote more republicans showed up. both sides are predicting a narrow margin of victory and lawyered up have observers here in the polling locations. and every vote counts and every vote will be scrutinized. >> steve: thank you for the live report. everyb
. senior correspondent scott cohn is there in the buckeye state's capital of columbus. what are you hearing before the polls close, scott? >> reporter: well, bill, it is an important state for both candidates. for governor mitt romney, it is nearly essential in his path to 270 electoral votes. he's made two trips here in the last 24 hours. actually, even less than that. here today up in cleveland for a quick stop following a quick stop at the airport here in columbus last night. vice president joe biden was here today as well practically bumping into governor romney up in cleveland where he paid a visit today. and president obama last night here in columbus, a rally attended by about 15,000 people as well as bruce springsteen and jay-z. all of this has definitely got the attention of the voters in ohio. here at ohio state university, they have been lined up out the door at a polling place here at the ohio union. we're hearing reports of strong turnout throughout the state, including in areas that are heavily republican or heavily independent, which of course tends to favor governor romney.
to deciding the outcome. lest. jeff flock is in columbus with the latest. jeff? >> of all the tossup states, the greatest among these is ohio which is why there's a big rally planned here today. i'm at the nationwide arena, and i want to take you inside, not only is president obama going to be here today, but a lot of the folks are here to see srb -- can i sneak in? thank you. here to see jay-z, and bruce springsteen. the folks here are fortunate to get a personal seat not just to see the president, but the entertainers as well. that's all part of the effort to energize the base and get voters out. we were earlier today, early voting location. it's amazing to me the lines. if anybody gets in line before 2, ends at 2, about an hour, if anyone is in line at 2, they will be allowed to vote, and, of course, this early voting, very important, democrats have the lead on that, and just getting them chargedded up, and according to those who know, what they are coming down to as close as the race is. one person said, i just hope somebody wins tomorrow. >> that's right. >> i hope it's not a huge mess
vote in franklin county, which is where columbus is and 18 and a half hours in cuyahoga county where cleveland is. this year a total of 16 hours over those three days. fewer hours of early voting is how you get lines that look like this. in places like columbus and cleveland and akron. it's an impediment to voting, and it is on purpose. here's another one not on purpose. "the new york times" reporting in ohio the stronghold of ohio county which includes clevelands had more people vote early every day this year than in 2008, until monday. what happened monday? hurricane sandy. the day of the storm when the daily tally began to lack from the levels of four years ago. so barriers to voting this year are in some cases acts of god. sometimes they are also acts of man. like republican state election officials woshlging to make voting more difficult and less available. in either case, ohio hangs in the balance, as does the election. joining us now is steve kornacky. steve, it's good to see you and sit next to you at this awkward angle. >> very awkward. >> i'll give you the side eye while we
. columbus, ohio, this afternoon. he ends his campaign in des moines, iowa, tonight where he gets joined by the first lady. mitt romney's final day also is about the narrow path he's trying to get to 270. it's florida, then virginia and new hampshire, states he needs along with either ohio and pennsylvania to get to that magic number of 270. the two campaigns both believe the fundamentals are in place for victory. >> for governor romney to win states like ohio, iowa, north carolina, he's going to have to carry election day by a huge mar margin. >> there's an intensity factor on the side of the republicans. there's a significant gap. we see it on the ground. we see it when people are knocking on the doors. >> both men are laying out their closing arguments. the final rallies in 2008 drew crowds of 60,000 and 80,000. last night in aurora, colorado, it was 20,000 supporters who heard the president argue this election is ultimately about character. >> part of a presidential race is about policy. but part of it's about trust. you may be frustrated sometimes by the pace of change. guess what?
near fisherman's wharf. it happened on bay street and columbus avenue. the suspects in their 20s are still on the loose. one suspect knocked the man on to the ground and the other suspect stabbed the victim three times and they got away with the victim's cell phone. >>> your time is now 5:24 last night's 49ers game had a very special meaning. their son colin had his first ever nfl start. they started after he was injured and was not cleared after that concussion. he was adopted when he was just a baby. he went to the university of nevada and had a football scholarship and was drafted by the 49ers. his father was proud of his son's accomplishments and was proud to get the big call sunday night. >> it was late at night and i said really, good for you, this is what you have been wanting. >> and boy did he deliver, 49ers destroyed the chicago bears, they won 32-7. >>> your time is now 5:25 bay area humane societies want to make sure pets get food this holiday season. the united states launched fill the bowl project. they want to help with the holiday food drive, and in east bay and c
. >> and take a look at ohio. the president holds a two-point lead according to a "columbus dispatch" poll leading 50%-48%. also, "the denver post" finds the president leading mitt romney, 47%-45%. >> another reason to be disturbed. right now, willie, mitt romney should be ahead in colorado. he should be ahead -- i'm just saying, he should be ahead in colorado, in virginia. he should be ahead in north carolina. he should be ahead in florida. he is according to "the miami herald" poll. virginia and colorado are two states that really give me pause for the romney camp. >> especially virginia. let's pause for a moment and appreciate how close this race is. we just went through about ten polls all either tied or within the margin of error. >> today, 24 hours to go, you can look at the polls. it's okay. >> they matter. >> i would ask you, mark, about ohio. we've sat here for weeks and said this is really going to come down to ohio. that poll was two points. the president has had some polls over the last week that showed him with a bigger lead. where are you hearing this race is right now? >> it
are pushed down to the road and they never materialize. i was in columbus, ohio, during the campaign. there's an amazing guy, the mayor of columbus, a long-term democrat, and he's done a deal on finances. when the crisis hit, he cut as much as he could in the back office, things people didn't see. he hadn't cut enough. sew went to the business community and said i can carry on cutting. i can put police services, park services, things that will actually affect the city of people's desire to live here, or we can have a revenue hike. and because he had already done the cuts in the back office and he could lay them out, the business community 100% supported a revenue hike. it was a really interesting model in one city. okay, it's one city. it's not the country, but it's an interesting model of how you can use cuts. >> i wasn't going to object what you said, i was going tack to what michael said. i don't sense the republicans saying they're flexible on rates. they keep saying we cannot increase marginal rates. we cannot increase marginal rates. donnie repeated the warren buffett point which is a
right now. governor romney really has to rack up the count on his side of things. yesterday in columbus urging his supporters at a rally to get out there and get everyone they can get to the polls. here he is. >> some of you have been successful in convincing your neighbors to vote for paul ryan and me and i thank you for that. now let's make sure that everyone we know gets out to vote on times you're here because you care about america. this campaign is about america and about the future that we're going to leave to our children. we thank you and we ask to you stay at it all the way until victory on tuesday night is clear. >> for governor romney today will be all about two things. how the independents break and what kind enthusiasm there is out there for conservatives to get to the polls. i thought mike huckabee said something interesting this weekend when he said in terms of conservative enthusiasm in this country look back on the chick-fil-a controversy, who thought that so many people would line up around the block for a chicken sandwich? imagine what they'll do when it comes to vot
a visit to a columbus, ohio field office. i know everyone in my neighborhood the ones that will vote and don't and what it takes to get them. she added they just shipped in a romney staffer a couple of weeks ago. how do you think is going to win around here? steve, that is the story. yes, and a lot of this you have that quote saying that we didn't see this coming. there was an assumption saying that was showing up in the polls. the republicans were saying what they didn't have was the infrastructure in place to bring that into a reality. part of it is they were bogged down in a primary. and part of it too was that is the nature of relying on the religious groups. and they hoped and sort of out sourced the gotv. >> i'm actually surprised steve, when governor dean became chairman in 2005, karl rove he used this methodology don't you remember the 72 hour strategy, we developed the under pinnings that became what the obama campaign did and one of the things that is so important about the quote that the woman made, to this day the most effective way to get a vote is a person to person con
, and we start with mike tobin in columbus, ohio, many still say voters there, mike, will decide of course, who actually wins this election and how it comes back to ohio. >> right. >> certainly does, that's why you have the candidates making the mad final dash in the buckeye state and both of them and the first lady made appearances yesterday. the obama campaign goes into the home stretch enjoying a significant lead in early voting returns, but the romney campaign says it's not as significant as the lead he held over john mccain in this same time frame. they believe they can make up the difference on election day, so, you have both sides going into the home stretch here extremely energized, the ground game, microtargeting of voters, personal contact is unlike anything you've seen in previous campaigns, we caught up with the group, americans for prosperity as they were mobilizing en masse and heading out into the neighborhoods. generally what you see with all of these door knock efforts is a mobilization of the base is the get out the vote effort. what americans for prosperity were doing, t
in columbus, ohio. shannon bream at the republican watch party if des moines, iowa. good evening, shannon. >> reporter: hello, bret. well, republicans here in iowa are hoping that romney will pull off a somewhat unexpected win. there is something down ticket that could help him. in 2009, the state supreme court here legalized same-sex marriage. that motivated and mobilized conservatives and evangelical christians. they had three of the justices that signed on to the opinion removed. a fourth justice on the ballot. that is not all. control of the state senate is control by democrats. conservatives hope to win it back to give them control of the both state houses and enabling them to pass legislation to been a the same-sex marriage. if the evident to get out the vote on the same-sex marriage issue is successful, it could help romney. secretary of state here says there have been very few complaints about the voting irregularities. the biggest complaint is vote whose didn't get the "i voted" sticker. take it now to steve brown in ohio. >> reporter: hey, shannon. yes, in ohio, the polls close
cloe. as you can see, we're looking at voters in the battleground state of ohio. this is columbus. no republican president has won the white house who has not won ohio. we're going to take you back to ohio a number of times as voters are hitting the polls across the country today. we have something we don't often see on election day, a big stock market rally. the dow industrials up 133 points today. what's the stock market telling us? good to have you on the program, gentlemen. thank you so much for joining us. let's talk about this rally. are you surprised, paul, that we have a triple-digit move? to what would you attribute such gains? >> good afternoon, maria. am i surprised? no, i'm not surprised. i don't think in the short term, meaning this week, the market says anything about the election. when you look back, as we are over the last 100 years, you have to look back from the week prior to the election and the two months prior to the election. so interestingly, though the polls two months ago showed that obama was really going to run away with it and it's been that way for the
president obama. 24% going for governor romney. mike tobin is live in columbus, ohio, now with more. mike? >> reporter: and, jon, to take your auto bailout point a step further, you look at the county-by-county breakdown in ohio, most of the state shows up red. mitt romney won most of the real estate in ohio, the president won the population centers, particularly in the northern part of the state. that's where the manufacturing is done, that's where the auto parts are made, that's where all the points about the auto bailout really hit home. there's another point that can't be ignored out here, and that's a court ruling that really seemed to contribute to the outcome. republicans here in ohio and the republican secretary of state wanted to close early voting in the weekend leading up to the election. the court said they couldn't do it. it was a big part of the democrats' ground game not just to get out the vote, but to get out the early vote. and we saw over the weekend the lines streaming out the door, people waiting in line two hours to cast a ballot between saturday and monday. there we
was there today. and our steve brown is there as well live in columbus with more on this enormous battleground. what's the mood, steve? >> well, the polls have closed but voting continues. it is a situation around the ohio state university campus that we're aware of now that if you are in line as the polls close you still get a chance to vote. they will let whoever was in the line part of the 7:30 vote. we started receiving reports that there was a line of over 700 nero -- near ohio state university and one person said it is more like 200. the governor said he was on his way out there to keep folks entertained and keep them company to keep them in line. in this state there is no such thing as extra votes. karl alluded to this a few minutes ago there will be an earlier indicator how this state goes. folks who were veteran political watchers in the state say about 45 minutes in, about 8:15 because the early votes are the ones that get counted and because the obama campaign has made it so central to the campaign strategy that should give them an idea how many votes or what size of a lead the ear
by a campaign office in columbus, making last-minute phone calls urging his supporters to turn out. >> we'll bring it home tomorrow. let's keep it going. >> reporter: and even appearing on "monday night football." >> in politics it's not winning elections, it's making sure that you're delivering for the folks who sent you. >> reporter: and while his top surrogates stormed the battleground states, some of the biggest names in entertainment also lent their voices, from jay-z. ♪ if we go for four more years >> reporter: to bruce springsteen who admitted he was rattled by that dismal first debate. >> actually the first debate really freaked me out. >> reporter: and now after four years in office and months of intense campaigning. >> it's out of my hands now. it's in yours. >> reporter: and you're looking at a live shot now of greenville, delaware, where vice president biden is expected to vote any minute now. this is the band room of dupont high school. now, mr. obama became the first president to vote early. he did that several days ago. vice president biden will eventually join president

with us? we will go on to brooklyn, in columbus, ohio, on our democratic line. >> i just wanted to say congratulations to obama and his family, and go obama. >> we will go next to miami, florida. >> i just wanted to basically say congratulations, obama. i am proud to be a first-time voter. i think things are really going to change in four years. it is his second time in. i think, to the point that he is not running for reelection, the republicans in congress will -- they will stop stalling everything he is trying to do, and try to give the president a chance to change things. >> steve think this will be different? >> i definitely do. this election had a lot of name- calling, trying to attack the other candidates. people have noticed that, and have reacted negatively toward the. obviously, romney did not win the election. i think people are looking for the positive things they will do for the country, instead of, this guy is going to do this. things like that. i think it is a step forward. >> we are joined from nebraska on the independent line. thanks for waiting. >> thank you for takin
